The Codex Maximilianeus bavaricus civilis is a civil code enacted in the Duchy of Bavaria in 1756. It was named after Maximilian III Joseph, and written in German, although it included many Latin phrases. In its content, it adhered to the Usus modernus Pandectarum more strongly than later codification projects. It remained in force in Bavaria until the enactment of the German Bürgerliches Gesetzbuch (BGB) on January 1, 1900.
